Does that mean copyrighted?

It does. The above listing shows the original copyright date and the renewal date.

By the way, is there a year for which we can say that all films released in that year or earlier are in the public domain?

Yes. And that year is 1922. Anything published in the US during or before that year had expired due to its complete full term expiry (which was then made up of a 28 year first term + 28 year renewal term + 19 yr extension term). Works for 1922's copyrights expired 1 January 1998, a few months before the Sonny Bono Act extending copyright a further 20 years came in. The next year to enter the public domain is 1923 which is set to happen on 1 January 2019.

My grandmother will likely be dead by then (she was born 1928). Hell, considering her lifestyle I doubt my mother (born 1957) will still be alive. Also, considering my (born 1990) mental problems there's a chance I'll be dead by 2019.

This is not good.

It is ridiculous and an offense to the people of the country who granted the copyright, understanding that it was to be for a fixed period. That fixed period turned out to be rather extensible when our "representatives" got their greasy mitts on it. If our politicians could rid the country of public domain, I believe they would.

Whatever the case, it is the law.

Thanks. I'll try to remember that.
